Did two batches. One with a mix from Cabelas and another with a mix from Owens BBQ. Not a fan of the Owens BBQ mix - my husband says it's a "sweet" summer sausage, to me it just has a musty "old" flavor to it. Yuck. Anyway, the cheese turned out GREAT! I've got more on order & we'll be making a double-batch with the Cabela's mix next weekend. p.s. One of our "presents to ourselves" this Christmas was the meat mixer. It makes a HUGE difference!
